She passed away Sunday - Feb 24th. As I prepare for the trip to Fort Worth, Texas, my feelings are mixed. Her last few years were not the Mother we grew up knowing. So the fact that her suffering was short term is a blessing. But it is always painful to look back and perhaps think, " I wish I had done, said more".
She was a strong woman, widowed in her mid-forties with two teens and a seven-year old daughter - I'm afraid I didn't fully appreciate her.
So, Mother - rest peacefully.
